Vermont Salumi is commencing renovation in the former Homer Fitts building at 159 N. Main Street. Vermont Salumi, owned Pete Colman, produces authentic, handmade, Italian meats and will open a storefront and cure, package and distribute in the rear of the building.
"I am looking foward to being part of the Barre business community," says Colman. "I have been thinking about this for years, and got serious about it 8 months ago and my plans are now being realized," he adds. "I am pleased with the renovations to the building being done by the Owner, Thom Lauzon and the assistance that I have received from numerous sources."
An opening is not scheduled yet, but Vermont Salumi hopes to be operational by the end of May, with a retail presence before the end of the year.
